 Detective Comics #6 (DC, 1937) CGC Apparent NM- 9.2 Moderate (P) Off-white pages. This impressive copy is a great example of the potential benefits of professional restoration -- it's been returned to its 1937 form! This pre-superhero issue lived up to its title, with sleuths like Gumshoe Gus plying their trade. The cover is by Creig Flessel and showcases the series' early headliner, Speed Saunders. That character's story in the book was also drawn by Flessel. The other prominent creators involved were writer Jerry Siegel and artist Joe Shuster; the future Superman creators produced both the Slam Bradley tale here and the story featuring the Spy. CGC notes, "Restoration includes: color touch, pieces added, tear seals, cover cleaned, reinforced, re-glossed.  Book does not have outer cgc case but is still sealed in original mylar. 

$3,999

Captain America Comics #37 (Timely, 1944) . With a quintessential  cover from Alex Schomburg, a Red Skull appearance, and a Human Torch story, this issue is much in demand. Syd Shores and Vince Alascia art.

Uncertified . Purchased in the late 80,s as a Fine. I actually think its a bit nicer . imageproxy.php?img=&key=c846ed7a40be7761Slight overhang on some of the pages. centerfold detached. I don't believe cover has been trimmed just miscut during printing process.

I have been mostly a buyer not a seller of comics. Have purchased mostly from major auction houses and shows. Have been going to San Diego since the late 80,s .I have been to local comic shops as well but have bought little there. I believe paypal guarantees most transactions.
